Fri, 06/03/2022 - 11:30am

Kirkpatrick Sales & Rentals of Union, has been named an authorized dealer for Bobcat Company, a global leader in compact equipment. Founded in 2018, Kirkpatrick Sales & Rentals serves customers primarily in Knox, Lincoln and Waldo counties.

“I originally spent 23 years in sales selling tractors and other equipment for a well-known brand at another dealership, but always wanted to own my own business,” said Wayne Kirkpatrick, the owner and president of Kirkpatrick Sales & Rentals, in a news release. “My wife, Corrie, and I started the rental business four years ago with just two Bobcat machines. When Bobcat asked us if we’d be interested in selling tractors, we jumped at the opportunity and the rest is history.”  

Kirkpatrick Sales & Rentals is a full-service grounds maintenance dealer that primarily serves large property owners, commercial customers and small hobby farms. As a new, authorized turf and grounds maintenance dealer, they will offer compact tractors, small articulated loaders, mini-track loaders, utility vehicles, commercial mowers, Toolcat utility work machines and a wide variety of supporting attachments and implements. They offer both new and pre-owned options, as well as full parts and service departments for customers.

“We decided to carry the Bobcat line because of the quality, name recognition and support they give customers – it’s second to none,” said Kirkpatrick. “With a great location on Route 17, we are centrally located to most other dealerships, so it’s easy for customers to come see what we have and how we stack-up compared to the competition.”

Kirkpatrick Sales & Rentals is at 2179 Heald Highway in Union. They can be reached by phone at (207) 718-8787,

“We look forward to working with Kirkpatrick Sales & Rentals and offering their customers access to high-quality products and services,” said Steve Ross, director of channel development at Bobcat. “We are firmly committed to working closely with dealerships, like Kirkpatrick Sales & Rentals, to ensure that every customer has a long-lasting, positive experience.”
